Indiana's only 100 Mile Trail Race - April 30 - MAY 1 2016
[ A value is required.

Welcome to the Indiana Trail 1LOGO00

We are very pleased to announce that the only 100 mile trail race in the state of Indiana will be held at Chain O' Lakes State Park in Albion, Indiana on April 30 - May 1 2016.

Please note that there will also be a 50 mile race option on the same course with the 100 mile race. There will be a 30 hour time limit for the 100 milers and a 15 hour time limit for the 50 milers.

The Indiana Trail 100 is a non-profit event managed by ultra-runners with the net proceeds going back to the park. We are convinced that once you run on our scenic course you will keep coming back. We will help you achieve your goal, whether it's your first 50 or 100 miler or setting your personal record time.


Registration for the 2016 Indiana Trail 100 will begin on Saturday, May 30th. We will take the first 400 registrants. Sign Up

2) 2016 Race Registration – Registration for the 2016 Indiana Trail 100 has already begun. The registration will be provided through RunSignUp:


Please note that the initial entry fees are the same as 2015. The fees will increase on 9/1/15, so please make a note of it.

3) Cap – The limit for the 2016 Indiana Trail 100 will be 400 runners. It is at the race committee’s discretion to determine the limits for 100 mile and 50 mile entries, respectively. We will provide advanced notice if we decide to close down one of the fields due to the maximum limit.

It is your responsibility to register before we reach our cap. This past year, we were contacted by approximately 200 people that requested to enter the race after we had already filled up.

4) Waiting List – As soon as the 2016 Indiana Trail 100 reaches its limit of 400 runners we will implement a waiting list. The runners will be placed on the waiting list in the order they sign up; the first on the waiting list will be the first to take the place of someone that drops out.

5) No Deferrals/No Refunds/No Transfers – There will be no deferrals, no refunds, and no transfers for any reason, including injury. However, we will allow runners to switch from the 50 miler to 100 miler, and vice versa, after you have signed up. More details to follow.

6) Western States – Please note that the Indiana Trail 100 is a Western States qualifying race.

7) Midwest Super Slam – Please note that the 2016 Indiana Trail 100 is part of the 2016 Midwest Super Slam.

8) Buckles – In 2016, we will again provide sub 24 hour buckles along with traditional buckles for runners that finish over 24 hours but less than 30 hours. The 50 mile finishers will receive a medal.

9) Training Runs – While the Thursday night training runs will still take place throughout the summer, we’re going to take a break from the Saturday morning training runs. We will advise once the Sunday morning training runs start again in the fall.

10) July weekend training run – The Indiana Trail 100 will host weekend training runs on 7/17 – 7/18. This will consist of the following dates and distances:

7/17 - One loop run (16.67 miles) on Friday night – starts at 7pm.
7/18 - Two loop run (33.33 miles) on Saturday morning – starts at 8am.
7/18 - One loop run (16.67 miles) on Saturday night – starts at 7pm.

We’ll meet at the Sand Lake beach parking lot to begin each run. Please note the following instructions:

- We start promptly at the times listed. It’s your responsibility to be there on time if you want to run with the group.

- We’ll have directional flags on some of the trails but not many. This is due to the campground being full. If you’re unfamiliar with the course or you don’t run with someone that is it will be your responsibility to follow the Indiana Trail 100 course markings.

- We are sharing the park with a full campground, so be respectful of how you act. For example, please be quiet when you run past campers at dark.

- Two of the three training runs are at night, so you’ll need a headlamp. Also, bring plenty of bug spray.

- We’ll have rolling aid stations at the schoolhouse and rally campground but you should be prepared to bring your own nutritional/hydration supplies.


- There is a zero tolerance policy regarding littering. If we spot anyone littering we will ask that they pick it up or risk not being invited back into the park.

- Please note that these training runs are not competitive. You won’t be rewarded for running faster than anyone else. Our focus is on preparing runners for 50 and 100 mile runs they have coming up, and especially for those that are running the Indiana Trail 100 next April. We will give out small prizes (like a t-shirt) for anyone that finishes all three sessions (total of 66.7 miles).

- Please thank our volunteers for giving up their time to assist with the IT100 training runs.
